Rainbows is for all girls aged five to seven (four in Northern Ireland)
Rainbows learn by doing – they get their hands dirty, do sports, arts and crafts and play games. Being a Rainbow is all about having the space to try new things. Through taking part in a range of different activities with girls their own age, Rainbows develop self-confidence and make lots of new friends.
Learning about the world together
Rainbows learn and grow through a programme of age-appropriate activities, trips and adventures - both in their weekly meetings and at special events. They are supported by a group of highly-trained, inspirational Leaders to try new things, challenge themselves and have fun.
The next step in her guiding journey
When a girl nears the end of her time at Rainbows, she can continue her adventure at Brownies - our section for girls aged seven to ten.
For girls aged seven to ten - being a Brownie is an adventurous journey that girls take with their friends.
Girls in Brownies have incredible experiences together, make brilliant friends and discover the world around them. Every time they meet up, groups of Brownies learn new skills and take on challenges as they work out what they want to be and do in the future.
A space to try new things
Brownies is about getting together regularly - often each week - to work on badges, play games and see friends. It's about trying adventurous activities and going along to special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays.
Brownies go for it!
Girls in Brownies are part of a small group called a Six, lead by a girl called a Sixer. They make their own decisions about what badges and activities to do next. They work together to explore their place within their local community and the world around them.
The Brownie Adventure
Girls follow the Brownie Adventure programme in their regular meetings. They work towards interest badges related to activities and skills such as stargazing or science investigation.
Moving on from Brownies
Towards the end of their Brownie days, when they are around ten, girls are introduced to some of the activities that Guides do. This helps Brownies to find out more about what's in store for them when they move up a section to Guides.
